    It is finally offical

    sarah palin has lost her bid for the House.

    Sarah Palin Loses as the Party She Helped Transform Moves Past Her

    From the NYT:

    Representative Mary Peltola, Democrat of Alaska and the first Alaska Native woman to serve in Congress, on Wednesday won a full term in the House, according to The Associated Press, holding back three conservative challengers.

    Ms. Peltola first won the seat in an August special election to finish the term of Representative Don Young, a Republican who died in March. Her victory, which flipped the seat for Democrats for the first time in 50 years, was considered an upset against Sarah Palin, the former governor and vice-presidential candidate.

    With her latest success, Ms. Peltola has secured a full two-year term as the lone representative for the state of Alaska. The loss for Republicans in the state ensures that they will hold 220 seats in the House — a razor-thin margin with just two races yet to be called — when leaders had hoped to pad that majority with as many additional seats as possible.

    “WE DID IT,” Ms. Peltola exulted on social media, posting a video of a dancing crab.

    With 136,893 votes after two rounds of tabulation, Ms. Peltola secured 54.9 percent of the vote, The Alaska Division of Elections said. Ms. Peltola defeated two of her Republican rivals from the special election — Ms. Palin and Nick Begich III, who is part of a prominent liberal political family in Alaska — as well as Chris Bye, a libertarian.

    Ms. Palin received 45.1 percent support, with a total of 112,255 votes. Mr. Begich received a total of 64,392 votes before being eliminated in the second round, while Mr. Bye was eliminated in the first round with 4,986 votes.
    Her time has passed, may she spend her days peering out her kitchen window at Russia. Be careful in your slide down that pole sarah, donnie is on that same pole

    Not to excuse poor sarah, but she was only peddling what a whole bunch of people wanted to buy

    I only hope that many of them have come to their senses.

    We also should remember how she got there-----much to the credit of Bill Krystal---who was cursed with a Republican hard on for dear sarah

    She was probably better equipped for porn than politics
